Chinese New Year happened while in Thailand.   There is a rather large Chinese population in Thailand and there seemed to be many coming to the hotel where our conference was being held.  It was a wonderful experience to see how this holiday is celebrated overseas.  I was sad to miss celebrating with my family back in the states.

The decorations were amazing – especially the ice sculpture!

The amazing ice dragon!

I got to watch the dragon dance and the fireworks.  When I get pictures from a friend, I will post them.  Both the dragon dance and the fireworks were amazing.

All dressed up to welcome in the new year!
